Birthday Poppies

Good morning!

Jessica here with a card I made recently using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' beautiful poppy stamp set called Poppies and Greetings.  I stamped the poppies on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  Then, I tore around the image and impressed it with an aida cloth impression plate to make it look like it was cross stitched.  To finish it off, I shaded the edges of the focal image with a light brown chalk ink.  

To finish the card off, I added some patterned paper, stitched to the card front (which was impressed with a woodgrain impression plate) and added a sentiment to the front of the focal image.  For a bit of elegance, I added some beautiful gold shimmer twine.

Before I go, don't forget about the end of the year SNSS sale event going on now until the end of the year!  Every stamp is 15% off in the store - no coupon code needed!  Thanks, Korin!

I hope you had a blessed Christmas with your loved ones! 
Happy New Year!
